Much has been made of Teal waiting to decide what National Team he will choose, probably too much. Teal was born in Canada, played on Canadian youth teams but grew up in the US and is eligible to play for both Canada and the US. When I interviewed him on draft day, I asked him if he aspire to play for Canada and he said he did. Throughout the season the answer changed but the question changed also.

I stopped by Comets practice last Friday. More of the new players were in camp since the last time I watched.

The lines will continue to evolve with time, experience, experimentation and new players. I will stop by practice again this week and try to provide some observations on the players.
The Comets play their first game this Friday the 12th against the Milwaukee Wave.
